Just came across this very rare Centerdoor. I have no connection to this seller. You be da-judge!
It appears to be in nice condition, not great, and some of it is correct. But sixty grand? Ha! Dream on.
We'll all be drinking that free bubble-up and eating that rainbow stew!
I've heard that song my whole life, have the 33 1/3 rpm album, and never knew what bubble up was until recently.
Looks like they are going for the 'rarity' to bring up the price. But the color I'm not to sure of!
A real world price would be in the 18-23,000 range in my way of thinking. But I'm not a purist.
See ?!? ALL model Ts were painted red. Beautiful ! They should have upholstered it in the correct red velvet though. All goods worth the price asked ! ;- )
With varnished wood trim
Red steering wheel, red coilbox. Must have had a paint sale at the International Harvester dealer.
Yes $60,000, but "NEGOTIABLE" !
Don't mind the color of the car but that red steering wheel and column, well now that just stops the deal cold! LOL
I believe that red T was sold here in Washington a few years back - I seem to recall looking at it - guy must be "fishing" !
I'm the 3rd owner of this '19 - it has never left Western Washington & I'd take 1/2 that (just kidding)!
Hi I do not know where these prices come from, I can't get $8,900 for my 1918 touring with Dayton wire wheels, new tires and a Warford and lot more options.
If you buy a whole gallon of red paint you might as well use it all.
As a fellow with a Yellow Speedster and a Maroon Yellowstone Bus I can't criticize colors folks pick. Having 3 correctly restores cars and a couple of rusty ones I can say you should do it the way you want. I'm not sure what I would ask for a car. I do know what I would pay.
A 1915 first year Centerdoor is indeed very rare, but I wonder if this red one is a '15, '16 or mixed together from later parts?
The 1915 Centerdoors had a one piece rear lower body panel in aluminum, while this one looks like it has three panels like the later Sedans.
That's a very nice looking car! If I had the space, it'd be mine! Ouch...
The seller has the same old convoluted narrative that I see on a regular basis: a long description that fails to actually describe what is being sold.
Says it was built in late 1915 then discusses aluminum and steel bodies yet neglects to indicate whether or not the car in question has an aluminum body.
Erik I believe they are Bloviating 1. (Present participle) to talk at length, especially in an inflated or empty way.
It's what one does when one does not have a clue.
If you can't bedazzle them with brilliance, baffle 'um with bullshit.
If I were you, I would raise the price. Last time I did that, I sold the car almost immediately!
I would hope they could at least provide a coil box cover for the asking price.
For $60,000 they should at least polish the brass I would think. Dave
Shouldn't that be, "If you can't bedazzle them with brilliance, baffle 'um with Babbitt?"
